The National Advocates for Arts Education (NAAE) met recently in Brisbane (August 15), and welcomed the Federal Arts Minister’s adviser, Michael Napthali, to one of its sessions.
NAAE was pleased to hear that there had been agreement between Ministerial offices (Arts Minister Brandis and Education Minister Pyne) about the importance of arts education, and the centrality of the arts to a liberal education. The meeting noted NAAE’s support for Minister Brandis’s statement about ‘taking the arts to a new place of creative excellence’.
Please read the attached documentation for a list of the agreements, including recognition of issues around accessibility, professional development and resourcing arts education.
